I had E. pole-evansii in the ground for two winters at the old location 
and two winters at the new location, both solid zone 6 locations. That 
said, I don't believe we have gone below 6-7°F in those winters, so they 
have not been tested through our worst case scenario. I use at least 2" 
of coarse wood mulch.
